Raider Nation extends to on-duty cops?
Rookie defensive lineman Christo Bilukidi tweeted Sunday that he got out of a $428 traffic ticket for running a red light after he told the police officer he played for the Oakland Raiders.
The tweet, which was later removed, read, "Ran a red light n got pulled over, cop ask me what I do n I said I'm a Raider, I dodged a 428$ ticket. #BigLeague."
In 2010, a Baltimore police officer came under fire after Ravens running back Ray Rice tweeted that he avoided a ticket for having windows that were tinted too dark by offering the officer an autograph for his son.
The incident raised questions at the time about whether celebrities receiving special treatment had become a serious problem.
